The course is structured with introduction to Fixture Design basics to final design. Design of fixture is key to effective utilization of machine tools. Basics of fixture design if not implemented correctly results in poor productivity & quality problems. Set-up time and cycle time reduction, increased accuracy on components, deskilling the job setting operation are the obvious advantages of a good fixture. Competence in right fixture differentiates excellent organizations.

A complete process of fixture design will be carried out from concept to finish design. Pre-design activities like design input, conceptualization, process planning, accuracy consideration, cycle time estimation, POKAYOKE, 3D modeling of parts and assembly, using popular design CAD tools and preparing the final manufacturing drawings. Design for Accuracy, Manufacturing and Assembly will be addressed during the course. It will be highly interactive and hands on training session and covers entire 360° view on all types of fixture design aspects.

  • Fixture design fundamentals
  • Introduction to Jigs and fixture – Basic elements
  • Study of component drawing for accuracy, cycle time, location, clamping and manufacturing process
  • Design exercise for simple fixtures
  • Introduction to hydraulics for fixture
  • A complete design project on fixture design for auto component
  • Hands on training using one of the popular cad tool
  • Introduction and conceptualisation to BIW, Assembly, Welding and Inspection fixtures
  • Case studies on all types of fixtures will be reviewed for better understanding
